It doesn’t matter what type of content we create, we all have to tap in to some sort of voice. Writers seek their perfect writing voices. Marketers are working to perfect their brand voices. Podcasters and videographers use their voices literally. Photographers and designers and artists have to find a way to convey their voices (or the voices of their subjects) without using words.
Our voices are many. They’re diverse in experiences, media, and style. We each bring something unique to the table, which is part of what makes this Craft Content community so great.
And it’s why our theme for Nashville Content Week and Craft Content Nashville 2018 is voice. We’re looking forward to spending a week discussing all of the different ways we use voice in our work and play as well as to better our city, state, nation, and world.
This e-book contains essays contributed from a cross-section of our Craft Content Nashville community as each ponders the idea of voice in their respective contexts.

As we continue to explore this theme of voice over the next year together, we hope you can use these texts as a launching point for discovering the role your voice can play. Maybe this is the year you sign up to speak at Craft Content. Or use your content creation (in whatever form you choose) to help amplify voices that aren’t being heard. Or work to improve and strengthen your brand voice across your various content channels. Or start that podcast that you keep putting off. Or … maybe something else entirely.
Our hope is that this e-book inspires you to do greater things with your voices, whatever that may be.
